Re: Photobucket. All my 480 related images here

Looks like the domain which hosted those pictures has gone. No emails from the host saying it was going so bit annoyed. I see tinypic is going to photobucket so that's screwed.

in short if I find them I'll upload again. Don't suppose anyone took a copy?

Re: Kids Show

funny. I never noticed that. This place has really gone into a decline. Having said that when did I last see a 480.... 1 this year I think. I do drop in and see what's new from time to time. I made two volvo related choices recently. Got myself a 940 2.3 turbo with a 16t turbo upgrade w/ supporting ...

Re: Photobucket. All my 480 related images here

No problem.

TBH I will not be coming to the scene. I had some good times here and met so many nice people but the 480 side is over. The fact that Vader sucked the life out of me don't help! I expect it's been turned into baked bean can many times over. :D

Re: Picture Of Standard Automatic 4 Speed Shifter

Fast auto 400 series. I remember mine with a T25 and super rich ecu. Pop goes the autobox. Was fun until that point... I even had an extra ATF cooler.

I am using a mix of water and isopropyl (99.7 alcohol) is your pump higher then the water bottle? I pretty certain the pump should be below. I run my 5lt tank from the boot. Mar...

Bloody hell! It's very much the old timers meet up! I'm half tempted to post another 10000. For the record I gave up 480's and now own a girls car. Mx5 and still have my Spitfire which was restored several years back. :D
